    We vary it up not e cause of allergies though I guess cause we sometimes get sick of having the same thing all the time. Cow milk, soy milk, oat milk and rice milk all depends on what I feel like getting lol

    Fantastic! My son has cut back on milk so much! From two glasses a day , plus cereal every morning to only having it on cereal so his eczema has improved 10 fold . I tried to trick him with soy and he almost threw the bowl at me (not really but you get me ) he was disgusted and I didn't know which kind of milk didn't have milk protein.
    I wasn't sure if it was that new A2 milk I was suppose to get! All so confusing but I will go buy some! Is it long life or refrigerated !? Thanks

    I prefer almond milk to anything else DH prefers oat milk DS loves rice milk and DD prefers cows milk but because we vary it so often we all happily drink whatever "milk" we have at the time.

    Back in the qld floods a few years ago this came in handy when all the shops we could actually get to we're completely out of all dairy milk (fresh uht and powdered) and only had rice and soy milk.

    Oh I was worried it can cause some sort of health issue....

    DS loves it, so I guess it's all good then.
    He likes any milk really.

    I have reduced his cows milk intake due to chronic bronchiolitis...had heard cows milk can increase mucous production so thought it was worth trying reducing/eliminating it.

    I try to limit soy consumption in general not just soy milk
    Just saw this....I will have to look at moving to something else then!! 😱

    It's not that there is anything wrong with it it's just I think it's overused - it is after all another mammals milk and yes it's not ideal for us to digest and lactose/milk protein intolerances are definitely on the rise , it also hinders iron absorption which is a quite common in a lot of toddlers , it is quite easy to get your calcium from other sources

    I think also the marketing is pretty clever , we are one of the biggest dairy eaters/drinkers in the world and osteoporosis and obesity are on the rise - the non dairy consuming countries have low levels of osteoporosis , asthma even colic !

    Yogurt is fermented and has different proteins so is easier to digest and has more health benefits ( the plain , live culture yogurts not the sugar filled processed ones!) my DS never drinks cows milk as a drink but sometimes has A2 milk on his cereal , or almond milk or as pp said goats milk
